Is it possible for Update Manager to ignore future specific updates I've deselected


When I installed 10.10 I uninstalled gwibber, empathy and ubuntuone. Twice now in Update Manager I've subsequently found gwibber on the list of possible updates. Is there a way to tell Update Manager not to include in future some programs, which I've uninstalled and don't want? Many thanks.

thx Frank

Thanks Frank for the reply. The suggestion on your link looks promising. I'll try it out tomorrow. Sounds like it might keep me from getting that unwanted Update Manager item in future. Cheers

Interested to hear how it goes. If it works, I might even try it for programs I'm not interested in (I'm lazy and I have plenty of HDD space; I let them update, then I ignore them).

ignore new update packages

Finally got time to try your link out Frank. But when I ran update manager to find the specific gwibber update package, it wouldn't appear. So I'm assuming, that since I ran all updates except for that package before, ubuntu won't show it again. I'm afraid, that if I install updates in future and there is a subsequent update for gwibber/ubuntuone/empathy and I install it, it may install the main package as well. That would be really inconvenient and irritating. It may take a while before I see another gwibber/ubuntuone/empathy update to try your solution on. I will keep an eye out however and shall reply again, when I have results to report. Thanks and cheers.
